First Kill showrunner revealed her thoughts on why the popular LGBTQ+ series was cancelled. Back in June, Netflix released the highly anticipated TV adaptation of the popular short story by Victoria “V.E.” Schwab.

The show follows teenage vampire Juliette (Sarah Catherine Hook), who must “make her first kill so she can take her place among her powerful vampire family.” Juliette then sets her sights on the town’s new girl Calliope (Imani Lewis) – who just so happens to come from a long line of vampire hunters.

The synopsis adds: “Both find that the other won’t be so easy to kill and, unfortunately, way too easy to fall for.” While the show received mixed reviews from critics, First Kill earned a large and dedicated fanbase – which resulted in the series landing on Netflix’s Global Top 10 TV list for three weeks.
